Another ex-Legend flies the flag

Chloe (left) and her team-mates
News from northern France where ex-Legend Chloe Baker has been playing for Leeds Met in the European Universities Rugby Sevens championship.

Its a bit grand a title for what is, in essence, an invitational sevens for universities mainly from England, France and Germany (plus one from Portugal) - but what is very clear from the limited news and results from weekend is that a) its huge fun and anyone who gets a chance to go in the future should not miss out, and b) English teams are well off the pace when it comes to Sevens!

It's a tough game when your opponent is 7'3!
As Chloe reports "My team did really badly but it was a great tournament. The French, German and Portuguese sides were all really strong and the tournament was really well organised."

Chloe's team were not alone in "doing badly". Ten universities took part - four from England, three from France, two from Germany, and one from Portugal. And it was the Sevens specialists from Portugal - the University of Coimbra - who took the title, while France's three entries finished 2nd, 3rd and 4th. The English and German entries disputed the minor places, with Chloe's Leeds Met team - national champions (at 15s anyway) - finishing 8th.
